How come my computer started asking me for a username and password after changing ISPs?

by on October 23, 2012

Q: I bought a computer from a friend who I am no longer in touch with. I switched from Shaw to TBayTel. I turned on the computer and it comes up ” Log on to Windowsxp”. Then it says “users name and password”. My question is how can I get into my computer and how would I delete this so it does not happen again?

    You can use a Windows Password recovery tool to figure out what the username and password is. You can then reset them to whatever you’d like.

    Here is a list, the first option listed is a good one to try: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/tp/passrecovery.htm
